Tina Fey (Portia) and Paul Rudd (John) didn’t have the best on screen chemistry and the story has been done time and time again.
The movie isn’t bad; it’s just bland. The best parts of the movie were the scenes with Lily Tomlin as Portia’s mother. If they could have found a way to double her screen time I’d be tempted to give this movie a B; as it is I can’t give it anything other than the middle of the road C.
RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and our resident movie celebrity/trivia expert. If you’ve taken a RunPee Quiz, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
